Authenticate User in Odoo with function session_authenticate() in POS

on 5/17/15, 8:37 AM 1,174 views

Hi all,

I try calling function session_authenticate(db, login, password) to verify a user. But server returned a error 

TypeError: authenticate() takes at least 4 arguments (3 given)

Here is my code, I called it in a function which I overriden in module PosWidget by : "module.PosWidget.include".

instance.session.session_authenticate(instance.session.db, instance.session.login, password);
// password : a string which is entered by user in text box.

You can find function session_authenticate(db, login, password) in /web/static/src/js/chrome.js and /web/static/src/js/openerpframework.js.

Function authenticate() (on server) in /web/controllers/main.py

Thanks all
